This is the time of year people love to visit Los Angeles. However, anytime is a great time to come here. For the most part, the weather is temperate and there’s got to be a million places to visit and enjoy, and because of that many people eventually move here, needing to find corporate housing Los Angeles until they find something more permanent.
My favorite things to do are always off the beaten path. Here are just a few of them:
The Bradbury Building.
When I first looked at this building I wasn’t impressed. I had heard all good but the outside wasn’t impressive. In my opinion, sometimes those are the best places. Once you step inside though it is like a different world. Fans of Blade Runner and Chinatown (2 of my favorite movies) will surely recognize this place.
L.A. Flower Mart.
When I first moved here for work, I was coming from the East Coast. It took me a bit of time to adjust to the time change, but I think even today I still awake earlier than what I ‘need’ to. Because of my early-riser mentality, I get the chance to visit this wholesale flower market. Just so you know, the last time I went there was a small 2 buck charge to get in. Which is nothing! They are also only open to the public at certain times, so check their website. Lots of great plants and flowers!
Hollywood Forever Cemetery.
Okay, so I have a darker side. From Rudolph Valentino and Jayne Mansfield to Tyrone Power and Douglas Fairbanks, you can walk down a certain memory lane. There are also outdoor films here. I know…crazy, but it is worth the trip and the time. Oh, and check out this book: Morbid Curiosity by Alan W. Petrucelli
